Neil Jendon video at Tense Forms

Neil Jendon has a new video posted at the Tense Forms website as part of their ongoing Muted Tones project. "War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning" is a ten-minute ode to the power of war as a psychological and spiritual force. With a powerful soundtrack of manipulated guitar noise, this epic observation/protest begins and ends abruptly, giving the feeling it was either sliced out of a larger whole, or is acting as a metaphor for the abrupt intrusion war has on the lives of those involved until it ends suddenly without warning.
